Roding Lane Cemetery, Woodford Green

On the way to Waltham Cross I stopped at Roding Lane Cemetery having spotted a row of CWGC headstones - off topic I know - and having recorded them noticed similar shaped headstones which were all of similar design but not of CWGC origins. Looking at them closer it transpired that they were the headstones of the Blitz and later bombings - a first for me - and I found them extraordinarily moving. I suppose that as I move into recording more north east London areas these headstones will become as familiar as CWGC headstones.
